Recipe of the Day: Mulled Wine

I like wine in all it's forms, Red, white, sparkling, dry, crisp, light, full bodied, imported, locally produced, fortified, even home-made... And I really like mulled wine. Remember, you're spicing and heating this wine so don't use your best bottle... go for a big grape flavour for a good price (think Argentina, Italy or Chile)

Mulled Wine

4 Cups apple cider
1 Bottle red wine
6 Cardamom pods
3 Cinnamon sticks
6 Whole cloves
3 Star anise
1 Tbsp orange zest (large pieces, not too fine)

1. Combine the cider, wine, citrus and spices in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and so,,er gently over low heat for 10 minutes. Pour into mugs and serve hot. Garnish with cinnamon sticks or large piece orange
peel as desired.
